For generations our practice has specialized in contact lens care. Dr. Paul F. Becherer was one of the first doctors to prescribe contact lenses in 1946. His original contact lens fitting set is displayed on the wall of the receptions room next to
Dr. P. Douglas Becherer's 2004 contact lens patent.
Dr. Paul F. Becherer was noted to have developed mono-vision technique allowing mature patients to be able to see at both dinstance and near in 1955.
Dr. P. Douglas Becherer has lectured on contact lens care to thousands of doctors that have been standard and taught in optometry programs for decades. Recently, he developed a computerized prescribing technique that allows a doctor to toally custom design a contact lens for any patient, even if they have extremely strong prescriptions, have large amounts of astigmatism or have both and need a bifocal. These lenses are custom designed for every patient.
Our doctors are known for our care of unique and difficult prescriptions. Patients with corneal diseases such as keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration or are scarred from refractive surgery can lead a normal life with properly prescribed specialty contact lenses.
Dr. Becherer and Associates was the first practice in the area to be certified to prescribe CRT (Corneal Refractive Technology) Lenses, which are worn during sleep and removed upon waking to restore vision to 20/20. They were the only practice in the area that participated in the 4 year University study to document safety and effectiveness of Orthokeratology.
